Hilary's Little Life Axioms

Only the real counts.

Never trust anything Catholic that is less than 500 years old.

Abolish everything. (Catholic)

Never join anything. (Catholic)

Never found, start, organise or volunteer for anything. (General)

Abolish Christmas. (General)

When you can no longer resist the urge to kill someone, always kill someone else, never yourself.

(Perhaps paradoxically) You can't kill people to solve your problems.

If you can't get out of it, get into it.

Reality is conservative. (Thanks Mrs. Thatcher)

No temptation is so great that it can't be resisted by running away.

Old things are better than new things.

Contrary to what everyone thinks, it actually is sometimes too late.

"Mrs." Thatcher? You mean Baroness Thatcher, of course.

Poor old thing. Even with dementia, she's twice the man Cameron could ever hope to be.

"Never trust anything Catholic that is less than 500 years old."

Hmm, that means you don't trust St Philip, who wasn't (quite) born 500 years ago, nor the Council of Trent, which opened about 450 years ago.

Adjust to 400 years and you're still safe.

I've squeeked him in. It's like the opposite of being "grandfathered in".
